About 2,400 Vermont electric customers were already without power as winds from Hurricane Sandy began to flow across Vermont in the early stages of the storm on Monday.

As of 3 o’clock Monday afternoon, Vermont utilities said about 2,450 customers are without power, most in the state's four southern counties.  

Vermont Commissioner of Public Service Keith Flynn says power outages are likely in this storm.

The National Weather Service was predicting high winds from at least 6 p.m. Monday until at least  2 a.m. Tuesday.
